I foolishly wasted time last week following a trail of links to a rather ridiculous right-wing website. There was a long, gleeful post about the outing of Joe Wilson as a liar, coward, and all around jackass. The way it was written, it seemed really important, but it wasn’t really clear why. In the comments section, I proposed the […]

I don’t know much about British politics, but I have to wonder: If there were an election in the U.K. tomorrow, how many seats would Labour lose to the Lib Dems?  I imagine they’d still have a plurality, but man. The bi-election results were not good, and dissent is rumbling.

Today  he treats us to a meandering, obvious article about the vacuity of all the ‘values’ discourse eminating from the Kerry-Edwards campaign. He notes with with some sadness that that a
